 Dearest students, 

It seems not too long ago that you arrived to De Anza and here you are ready to move on to your next journey in your education. You have worked so hard and have done it all in a foreign country, and for many of you while learning a foreign language. That alone is an awesome accomplishment! Be proud of yourself!  I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to know and serve you. I sincerely wish you the very best in what’s to come in your life! Keep in touch if you can, hearing back from students is one of the greatest satisfaction of my job :D 

Keep being awesome!
